What happens if my child is unwell with COVID-19 Symptoms?
- Book a PCR test for your child and inform the school
- There is no legal requirement to self-isolate if you test positive with COVID-19, however, we are asking parents / carers to carefully consider the safety and well-being of other children and staff and therefore asking that you inform the school that your child has COVID-19 (LFT or PCR) and not come into school as they have an infectious disease.
- The recommended period to be kept away from school is at least 5 days and then returning to school only if they feel well enough. Please keep in contact with the school.
